TI introduces fully-integrated load switch with lowest ON resistance

(PresseBox) (Dallas, ) Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NYSE:TXN) today introduced a fullyintegrated load switch with typical ON resistance (rON) of 5.7mW at 3.6-V, four times lower than the nearest competitor. TI's TPS22924C integrates at least four parts into one to simplify subsystem load management. The high level of integration in an ultrasmall 1.4mm x 0.9mm chip scale package (CSP) addresses spaceconstrained, batterypowered applications such as portable industrial and medical equipment, media players, pointofsale terminals, global positioning systems (GPSs), notebooks, netbooks, and Smartphones.

Key features and benefits of the TPS22924C

- Ultralow ON resistance of 5.7mW at 3.6-V offers minimum dropout through the pass FET.
- Input voltage range of 0.75 V to 3.6 V supports portable applications.
- 2-A maximum continuous switch current covers a wide range of currents.
- Low shutdown current of <2uA uses minimum power consumption in shutdown mode.
- The TPS22924C is the newest member of TI's extensive load switch family. The new switch complements TI's portfolio targeting the portable equipment market, which includes battery chargers, DC/DC converters and OMAPTM processors.

Availability and pricing

The TPS22924C is available with samples by the end of December, and evaluation modules in 2Q10. The TPS22924C comes in an industryleading, smallfootprint CSP package (1.4 mm x 0.9 mm), and is priced at $0.55 in 1,000unit quantities.
